Sonora Bridge CG is a mile or so before you hit 395. Very nice spot.

I am concerned about fatigue for the group also. Gil and I are leaving Camarillo about 8 am. Running up the 33 to the 41 to the 49 to the 108.

I did see that campground on the 108 just before the 395. We can check it out, the Bootleg Camp, and Chris camp on 395 south of Walker.

Joel and I are going to keep in touch by Instant Message.... We hope!

i agree, if the crew is tired, we'll do what's best, find a nice camp site, and continue the ride in the morning.

Something to think about.

There could be more traffic coming up the 108 on a Friday that late in the day..... Tioga may be the better option since turistas tend to come down and head back to the valley floor...

There are lots of small towns and people heading to cabins late on Fridays..

I didn't realize you all were gonna get a late start...

Damn, I'm flip flopping like a politician...

Yeah, that's a good thing that you can not pack for a ride-in trip. Forget about Giant Loop or others. That's a perfect setup you got over there. :)

Weather looks like it will be perfect in the upper 70's. Looking forward to seeing a few familiar faces and meet a few new one's. See you guy's tommarow afternoon sometime.
